Lions PK Hanson named NFC Special Teams Player of the Month

Lions place kicker Jason Hanson has been awarded NFC Special Teams Player of the Month of September 2011.

The 41-year-old Hanson is 8-for-8 on field goal tries for the undefeated Lions, but even more astounding, is 3-for-3 on kicks from over 40 yards and 2-for-2 on 50+ yard field goal boots. Hanson also has 11 touchbacks on his 21 kickoffs, nearly matching the 12 touchbacks he recorded on 169 kickoffs over the previous three seasons.
